I was able to use .img files in the forums with 11a...I never took 12b...just stayed on 11a and ignored the update.

I returned to stock to get to 24a and was able to root but can't for the life of me get CWM recovery installed. I have tried flashify, installing zips, pushing .img with adb...no dice. I get error messages every time or the black screen you described in this thread's original post.

Just tried to load the zip from TWRP...no dice.

I purchased touch through the paid version of CWM and chose my device...nada...it's killing me!

I can live with TWRP but love CWM touch. Really at a loss.

Are you running 24a? If so, can you point me toward the forum link you used to get CWM loaded?

With 24a I pushed it with adb instead of flashing it via Flashify and it worked decently for me. Personally, though, I do like TWRP more, albeit it doesn't have that convenient application like CWM does.
LG G2 - Rooted and unlocked daily driver.
Samsung Note 2 - Rooted, bootloader unlocked, overclocked and harboring an extensively modified TouchWiz.
HTC Droid DNA - JTAGG'd with Root and S-OFF on OTA update.

So you took the OTA and you're on 24A now? If thats the case you need to push the 12B aboot first before you can flash recovery. AutoRec will do all that. And flash recovery for you. After its finished you can flash CWM touch if you want.

Have you ever seen this? https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ft.twrpmanager It flashes recovery for you, you can manage backups, with a donation you can even make live backups while still booted in Android. I haven't tried it yet because I keep forgetting. Sounds so cool though.
